The Liberal News Media and Liberal Pundits keep (wrongly) stating that Special Counsel Bob Mueller would have charged President Donald J. Trump with "Obstructing Justice", if Department of Justice rules allowed a sitting President to be indicted.
They keep asserting it because its true.
Did you not hear him say that his report did not exonerate the president.
Did you not hear him say that the president can be charged as soon as he is no longer in office?
No of course you didnt.
Judge Koeltl's easy to read summary here: www.techdirt.com...
A little over a year ago, a lawsuit was filed by the Democratic National Committee against the country of Russia, Wikileaks, the GRU, Julian Assange, the Donald Trump campaign, and a long list of Donald Trump associates, including Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr. and more.
As we discussed in great detail, this was a pro se-level lawsuit full of absolutely crazy legal theories that stood no chance in court, ostensibly over the hacking of the DNC's computers that occurred during the 2016 election.
The complaint was mostly a conspiracy theory wrapped in a legal complaint, tossing in absolutely silly CFAA claims, SCA claims, DMCA claims and (because why not?) a RICO claim, despite the fact that it's never RICO.
Thankfully, though not surprisingly, federal Judge John Koeltl, has dismissed the case. The order runs over 80 pages, but the judge does a nice job summarizing the many, many faults of the complaint upfront.
